the state house, indiana deficits. when ms. daniels came into power just a couple years later and budgets to help to write, indiana with $700 million in debt and had a deficit of $800 million. facts are stubborn things. how are we going to make sure and preserve the fiscal integrity of the state of indiana? >> congressmen come if you spent the last 10 years in indiana, you'd know that our budget has to be balanced in indiana according to our constitution. i balanced and produce bipartisan balanced budget. and oddly, these were supported by fort wayne zone david long and the tenet of american, peggy stillman. i find it almost laughable that the united states congress and with lecture anybody about fiscal responsibility. he voted out once, not twice, but five times, congressman. you voted to edit the results increased her deficit by 200 billion, billion with a b. dollars. >> now look at the race for pennsylvania's 20 electoral college votes but a political scientist in the state. >> for the next server based on c-span's "washington journal" come we focus on key background states in campaign
in castleville, utah. you know, the biggest issue we're facing in this country is the debt and deficit. we have to solve this, and i think orrin and i would both agree, we have to go back and make some very challenging cuts. now, i've always supported the simpson-bowles. i believe that is the beginning that we have to implement it. but, ladies and gentlemen, if we don't fix this debt and deficit, your future and my future and more importantly our children and our grandchildren will be at such a challenge, they'll never enjoy the blessings and benefits that we've had in this country. i believe that we have to immediately implement changes, and one of the things is to look at our defense carefully. when we spend $300 million a day, we can no longer afford that. we have to go through and do a performance review on each and every department within the federal government to insure that we're getting effective, efficient government and that technology is used in order to give the return on taxpayers, something that hasn't happened for the last 36 years. >> moderator: senator hatch. hatch: well, i app
stand here having voted for trillion dollar deficits for the last four years. the largest, fastest debt increase in american history and say that we have to control spending. you have done nothing to control spending of the last four years, and with respect to cuts, cap, and balance it is amazing to me also that the idea of cutting wasteful spending, capping the ability of congress to spend money we don't have and balancing the budget is extreme. i think it would force congress to set priorities and stop funding things like solyndra and prioritize things like social security, medicare, and education, and that is why i support a balanced budget amendment to the constitution. >> the race to succeed retiring new mexico senator is just one of the key house, said, and governors races you can follow on c-span, c-span radio, and at c-span.org / campaign 2012. >> more now from the reason for a moscow conference on the balance between government secrecy, transparency, and public access to information. these next panelists analyze the implications of various national security leaks, including mil
for the call. robert gleason, i will have you respond to the issue of taxes and the deficit. guest: people in america do not want to raise taxes. the way to get the deficit under control is to spend less money. we have been taxed enough. grover norquist does a good job. our governor said the same thing. stop spending. host: a democrat from pennsylvania is on the line. caller: my question is for robert gleason. suit. pat toomey voted against a bill he helped write. how am i ever going to vote for republicans when they vote against a bill for political guest: i do not know about that bill. pat toomey is a strong supporter of veterans and jobs. but, you know what? he wants to stop spending money. that is why he was sent to washington, to get the costs under control. we as a country -- barack obama has us trillions of dollars in debt. we have had trillion dollar deficit. we cannot do this anymore. it is killing our country. that is why this election is between mitt romney, a businessman, who knows how to run an organization. the scope josh, can you break this down? -- host: josh, can you break
addresses the deficit and the need for revenues. let's leave that problem off the table and talk about the job situation. i like what romney wantso do, the code has a lot of deductions that shouldn'te there, we should just lower rates and get at them. and in fixing that, if you pay 25%, and then you get deduct the mortgage or don't get to deduct the mortgage and pay 20%. if you're net-net not getting taxed any more, i don't see how that's actually going to lead to more spending and i tell you a little dangerous in the short run, the housing market is still-- and to pull out major deductions the home mortgage deduction being one of them. he didn't say he was going to do that, if it didn't do that, but makes the budget work. >> brenda: i know, the tax code is like war and peace. overhauling it, will that help get jocks. >> like you've read that. >> not immediately, but look, we've got the most sophisticated tax code in the entire world, makes us uncompetitive and the u.s. falls on a competitive basis and a lot of reason is the tax code. what it's done, it's made small businesses at a big
a -- >> deficit in two months, if we have a divided senate, it's the popular vote goes for governor romney and the president's reelected, who knows what will happen? >> gregg: the city will -- >> after this campaign, with doug and i have written about, after tearing the country apart in divide and conquer, the republican willingness to work with him is not high. >> he said this before which is important, is if we had that split ballot, in other words, they vote popular vote for romney, electoral vote puts obama over the top, or vice verse is a, doug is very smart about it. that this is going to delegit maze the winner. >> 40% of the people in -- >> we could have an election here where everybody agrees on the counting of the votes, unlike 2000, but had the system delegit maze with a fair vote. >> you're going to hear so much screaming and yelling about fraud. i'm going to tell you, if you have that outcome, second time around, 40% didn't believe the president was legitimate. >> gregg: we'll wait and see what happens on tuesday. i would guess ask you for your pre dicks burks i'm told you wil
of enthusiasm on both sides. my strong sense, paul, this is an enthusiasm deficit on the democratic side. >> paul: all the polls show that. >> all the polls show that and i think it's a going to be a determining factor, now, new jersey, new jersey, maryland, it isn't going to decide whether-- obama will win those states. his popular vote may be down, i think the hurricane is going to suppress the popularity vote. >> paul: dampen that. >> and i spoke to a pollster not working for the obama campaign and agreed with dan's sentiment, turnout was an issue for democrats, enthusiasm is down, but also says that he thinks this allowed obama, even though he missed some days on the campaign trail, allowed him to get out there and show some leadership, some bipartisanship, thanks to the new jersey governor, republican chris christie be being at his side for a couple of days. >> paul: i want to ask you, new jersey residents, and generally a fan of governor chris christie, what do you make of this embrace of the governor with the president? >> well, our colleague peggy noonan, says you want to keep yo
among men is not bigger than his gender deficit among women. which seems to be a concession from that official at least that he's losing ohio because obviously all of the voters are either men or women. >> excellent analysis there. >> the voters are either men or women. there you go. throughout this campaign the democratic brand has been above water and more popular than the gop brand which has been consistently under water and less popular than the democratic brand. the entire time in this whole campaign. it's not just a party i.d. issue. not just akin or mourdock. do you think the gop brand is drag romney down just enough? >> well i think a few years ago congressman tom davis of virginia had talked about this basically saying the gop brand was dog food. i think it's better than it was then. i do think that -- look i think romney has had a lot of things to overcome in terms above signatureses that he took in the primary when he talked about being severely conservative. not necessarily the republican brand but perhaps the conservative wing of the republican party was hard for him
the hurricane and who took a $300 million surplus and left us with a $1 billion deficit, or you can choose me. i would like to go to washington to lead the fight to reduce spending and regulations and do things to grow this economy. i would appreciate your vote. >> i am not a politician. this is a little bit uncomfortable. i am a businessman and chairman of my local council. the negativity that has consumed this campaign bothers me. cynthia, i am tired of your criticism of old, wealthy white man. he went beyond the pale when you accuse angus king of the allied air. charlie, i am tired of your commercials ruining all of my favorite shows on abc. you do not think angus is responsible for a lot of terrible things. as an voter and citizen of maine, i will ask you to stop your attacks for the next hour. if you do not do any attacks for the next hour, i pledge to give two checks for $5,000 a piece to the charity of your choice. this will prove that you will put maine first. >> now that you know a little bit about each of our candidates tonight, we will move right to our questions. there are a lot of i
for president obama. you know that he promised bipartisanship and to reduce the deficit by half. you know that he was going to give us accountable government. he said he would reduce the health insurance by $2,500. today we have -- we had promises of economic recovery. this president today has not delivered on his promises of 2008. that is reason enough to have him not be president of united states. he has not delivered. [applause] it is very clear that america cannot afford four more years obamanomics. and the abuse of power by pointing many of his own party and executive orders be on the constitution. -- beyond the constitution. we will have a new president obama -- pardon me, i mean, president runomney. $814 steel is that did not work. -- stimulous that did not work. worst economic problems america has faced since world war ii. 23 million people looking for full-time jobs. under an employment a 40% of the economy. -- underemployment making up 40% of the economy. many people on food stamps. that is the failure, but americans are not quitters. we can turn the ship around and we will turn
distasteful aspect to it. not just about trimming the budget and getting your arms around the deficit, it's about the world -- >> that's exactly the kind of things voters should know. the real way to get them to know it is through these ads. that's what reaches them. that's why they raise that money. >> while lawrence is had hitting on something important because this happens with other -- >> that's what i do. no. >> it's barometric -- >> i'm here to bring the importance. >> the gold nugget of the news cycle. >> but it is so true, that we get this lecture every time something terrible happens. we got it in on gun control when we looked at gun tragedies which is an issue, by the way, where both nominees i think are fairly poor on the policy. but even still, even though it was a bipartisan neglect of gun control this narrative we can't talk about this. i think it's the opposite. with dignity you can still discuss the policy implications. >> can i just quickly say for the rest of the campaign, you don't have to listen to me when i make a prediction, i said i think romney has to keep campaign
a little more, so we could reduce the deficit and still make investments in things like education, train, science, research. and guess what? plenty of folks running for congress at the time said it would hurt the economy. that it would kill jobs. and if that argument sounds familiar, one of those candidates back then happens to be running for president right now. and it turns out, their math was just as bad back then as it is today because, by the end of bill clin totoclinton's turn am created 23 million jobs. the biggest surplus in our history. wisconsin we know the ideas that work. we also know the ideas that don't work. because in the eight years after bill clinton left office his policies were reversed. the wealthiest americans got tax cuts they didn't need, and that we couldn't afford. companies enjoyed tax breaks for shipping jobs overseas, insurance companies, oil companies, wall street given free license do what they pleased. folks, at the top got to play by a different set of rules than the rest of us. and result of this top-down economics was falling incomes, record deficits, s
the deficits responsibly by cutting where... we can, and asking the wealthy to pay a little more. and ending the war in afghanistan, so we can... do some nation-building here at home. that's the right path. so read my plan, compare it to governor romney's... and decide which is better for you. it's an honor to be your president... and i'm asking for your vote... so together, we can keep moving america forward. i'm barack obama and i approve this message. >>> as we enter the final weekend of the presidential race the candidates will not only be eyeing the polls, they'll be keeping a close eye on the redskins games because the redskins have historically been a reliable predictor who wins the white house. in 17 of the past 18 presidential elections, if the redskins win their final home game before voting, the incumbent party wins the white house. if the skins lose, the challenger goes on to win. the only time that did not hold true information 2004. the redskins are playing the carolina panthers who are awful, by the way, at home sunday. fox 5's lindsay murphy joins us with a preview of the gam
-dollar deficits in washington? how about four more years of gridlock in washington? there's no question in my view that we really can't have four more years like the last four years. i know the obama folks are chanting four more years, four more years, but our chant is this -- five more days, five more days. that's our chant. [ cheers and applause ] [ chanting ] you know, we're going to have to come up with a better slogan tomorrow, or a different one at least. i know the president's been trying to figure out some way to suggest he's got some new ideas. because with all these people out of work, with 3 million more women in poverty today than when he took officer, with 15 million more people on food stamps than when he took office, he's got to find something to suggest it's going to be better over the next four years. so he came up with an idea last week which is he's going to create the department of business. i don't think adding a new chair in his cabinet will help add millions of jobs on main street. [ cheers and applause ] i mean, unfortunately what you've seen before your very eyes is a cam
trillion in debt and trillion-dollar deficits every year, that's a chill on growth. tax policy has been complete uncertainty on his part, monetary policy you might argue that what chairman bernanke has done, you might argue that has helped growth at the margin or preserved jobs at margin at the risk of inflation. >> in a perfect world what do you think we could have been at? >> normalized i think a normal recovery, maybe if there's truth to what paul krugman talks about, maybe it's not 8% but it's 6%, 7%. you need 200 to 300,000 jobs a month to create the kind of jobs, 12 million jobs that mitt romney is talking about and that's, should be relatively easily doable. >> 2011 was slower than 2010 and 2012 will be slower than 2011, and we're starting at what just over 2%. i think it's horrible. i was trying with him but he just, i give up. there was five points he just gave me. he's right. you have to take the ball because i've thrown everything in a handout. he totally convinced me. i'm not even arguing. >> you were on the other side of this before. >> initially when i was trying to nail h
and the deficit. guest: people in america do not want to raise taxes. the way to get the deficit under control is to spend less money. we have been taxed enough. grover norquist does a good job. our governor said the same thing. stop spending. host: a democrat from pennsylvania is on the line. guest: my question is for -- caller: my question is for robert gleason. you said bob casey was an empty suit. pat toomey voted against a bill he helped write. how am i ever going to voted for republicans when they vote against a bill for political reasons? guest: i do not know about that bill. pat toomey is a strong supporter of veterans and jobs. he wants to stop spending money. that is why he was sent to washington, to get the costs under control. barack obama has us trillions of dollars in debt. we have had trillion dollar deficit. we cannot do this anymore. it is killing our country. that is why this election is between mitt romney, a businessman, who knows how to run an organization. guest: there are about a million more democrats than republicans in the commonwealth. the number of democrats continu
and policies on deficits. i think there is going to be a long period of time before we will get any action on this. i'm just talking about when someone puts out an idea, which has to be challenged in congress and debated, and then you get something fast, and then you have the implementation. after all, think about where we are as far as implementation in terms of obamacare. unfortunately, i am very pessimistic about when we finally get resolution. >> yes, sir. >> i am a student at harvard kennedy school. you started your remarks talking about the incredible remarks before the conservatorship. as we think about the entities that will follow, how we think about creating an appropriate amount of political installation against lobbying when it comes to capital requirements or appropriately pricing governments guarantee? >> that is a real important question. i can tell you that during my time in the conservatorship. we had really strong restrictions. we were not able to make any political contributions. not just the corporate level, but i, personally, was not able to do it. i happened to go thr
of sequestration and congress couldn't get act together to figure out how to reduce the deficit. automatic cuts went in affect . governor romney got a lot of questions about fema because he said in the past he would cut some aspects of fem a. dana weighed in on this. >> remember, governor mitt romney was governor of massachusetts and knows how the federal and state relationship works. there is no one in washington who could look at the program and say there couldn't be improvements and see how we can get money to the people faster. in fact, president obama himself said that today. he instructed the federal government no red tape or bureaucracy. it is preposterous to try to hang that on mitt romney. one of the first things he said. people who donated to his campaign. we don't need your resoues at this moment. give to the red cross or check on your neighbors . where do they start being political. on saturday the federal government put out a statement about the storm, it uses campaign language lean forward which happens to be a competitive net word. i could not believe that someone in the white ho
the financial district. where the markets opened today for the first time after the storm. a deficit stated region begins to crawl back to life. >> we have a ways to go but we're beginning to make some real progress. two days after sandy hits the northeast like a sledge hammer the rescues continue. homeowners up and down the east coast now getting their first look at towns that may never be the same again. tonight, president obama surveys the damage in new jersey. >> our hearts go out to the families who have lost loved ones. >> and promises that relief is on the way. plus, remember the election? >> i know we have huge challenges. but i'm not trend by them. >> shepard: with less than a week to go until the next goes to the polls, governor romney jumps back on the campaign trail. but first from fox this wednesday night, assessing the damage after the unprecedented storm and with each hour the full scope of sandy's destruction is becoming clearer. earlier today, president obama toured the destruction in atlantic city and really up and down the jersey shore with the jersey governor chris chris
. that's crazy. but because we've got such a gigantic deficit right now, peter, you're exactly right. if the congress says okay, let's put more money in the 'til for fema, that money is probable lea going to be borrowed from china. >> peter: also, people sign up and they pay for flood insurance program and so they pay premiums and it should be paid. but there is a cost. >> gretchen: yeah. i think most americans don't mind paying taxes if it's going to help these devastated people. they might want to crack down on waste that we're in the government first. >> peter: that's absolutely right. >> gretchen: so when the president went to new jersey yesterday, he flew over point pleasant, one of the most devastated regions in new jersey with governor christie. somebody else had something else in mind. apparently they're not a president obama fan. because in all the sand that washed up, somebody put letters r, o, m, n, e, y. >> steve: why? because they love him. we have gotten some cables labeled secret that shows that about less than a month before the assault on our consulate in benghazi, a
for romney's deficit on the campaign level, and i don't think that's true. i think they're on a par or maybe even more of an advantage for democrats, when you count those outside groups. >> host: the caller also mentioned the electoral college, and because the swing states, florida, ohio, pennsylvania, virginia, nevada, some of these, have more electoral college votes than some of the other smaller states, and that the candidates are spending more time in these particular states, do you see a smaller hora -- or a larger ground game in states that don't get visited, state like washington, hawaii, california, new york, i mean, those -- texas, those states are already in one column, or their electoral college votes are so small, do you see a bigger ground game effort to make up for the fact that the candidate just isn't going to come there? >> no, your see almost no ground game in states that are not swing states. now, there are some swing states that are quite small, in terms of electoral votes and physical size, like new hampshire, iowa, nevada, both have only six electoral votes, but in the
-0 deficit and history would have to be made if the tigers want to win a championship. dave briggs is live at comerica park with a look back. is that the game ball. >> here is the thing, desperate times call for desperate measures and the tigers are turning to me to pitch game four. >> oh, no! >> i'm on the mound. >> hang on, is hell freezing over? >> i'm just getting loose and going to make the start instead of max sherzer in game four, this series is all, but over, now the tigers are the first team since 1966 to go down shut out twice in a row in the world series, the orioles shut out the dodgers back-to-back games in '66. let's show what you happened last night. top two, really all the offense. this san francisco giants team would need. and it came here, a triple from gregger blanco and he might be the mvp in the series, terrific in left field and comes through with another clutch hit there and 1-zip giants. later on in the inning, blanco would trot home on a crawford single and go up two. that ball misplayed like so many others for the tigers team through this three game series. the bi
for debt and deficits, health care, energy, any day we're talking about something else, that's good for obama, and so i will be surprised if he doesn't make a little bit of a comeback here. he's had a prett pretty solid mt for a month. there wasn't anything happehe m. what may stop it is this storm and not so much that the president will do a great job, although i don't have any doubt that he will. mostly what happens right after a terrible storm is we know where i come from, it's the local first responders. it's the firemen, the policeman, the highway patrolmen, the national guardsmen, the mayors, the governors, but the federal government has a role to play, a bigger role down the road, but the biggest thing is changing the subject is great for obama. he's been trying to change the subject all year. >> greta: let's talk about timing. if he changes the subject, for instance, monday night, if everyone is done early voting, doesn't matter if he changes the subject. we're a week out and the subject is being changed a week out. there's a lot of early voting going on. i'm curious if ther
and deficit. people succumbing to insatiable greed is what led to the fate of so many families. i believe there is a direct correlation between their are only 17 women in the united states senate and 20% of women live in poverty. i believe there is a lot that is captured by big money and the fact that one in five children are without health care. >> moderator: steve woods? woods: beginning an answer is education. we have a large infrastructure here in maine. maine is the size of many other states combined. we have a little economic engine. it is nobody's fault. it is the way that state is laid out. the answer is for us to continue. years ago, people competed in commerce and we had cars and air transportation. we are now in the global marketplace. i was just in california and we need to compete across the country that involves investment technology and it starts in grades k-12. talk about jobs for people in their 20s and 30s, we don't focus on being more competitive or more grants. >> moderator: cohead 3 >> moderator: cohead >> it is due to the fact that our government hasn't been able to
and demonizing. he said he was going to cut the deficit in half he's doubled it. he said he would focus on jobs, instead focused on obamacare that kills jobs, he said he'd bring health insurance down $2500 a year, the cost of it for the average family. anybody here had their insurance go down 2500? as a matter of fact the average is up $3,000 per family. look, the president said that he would work across the aisle. he would meet regularly with leaders in the republican party. do you know how long it's been since he's met with the republican leader he of the house or the senate on jobs, or the teconomy or the deficit? since july, he hasn't met with them. he just has not been able to deliver on the promises he's made. talk is cheap, a record is real and takes hard work and he's not been able to accomplish it and i have a record of accomplishment and that's why i'm running. (cheers) >> as you know, i started a business, i actually helped turn around another business and help turn around the olympics and you may have heard that i was governor next door in massachusetts. massachusetts in uple of my
, to also reduce the deficit. my vote is mack. host: talk about commercials and ads on this race you have seen. especially the past couple of days and what you have been experiencing. caller: there are negative ads on both sides. never know what to believe. you see all kinds of negative things. the democrats, all kinds of negative things, the republicans. but you cannot base your vote on that. you have got to get their policies, principles, platforms, what they stand for, if they are conservative or liberal, and then, vote on that basis. host: had a thing florida will go over all? caller: overall it is one to go for romney. the polls are showing a couple point advantage to mitt romney. nelson, the democrat is ahead of mack, but we are all voting for mack and help him. host: wisconsin, on our line for independents. caller: appalling about the woman from wisconsin, my state about the woman from a woma from wisconsin. they say the debt is being rolled over. he is not fiscally responsible. he was nicknamed taxing it tummy when he was here -- taxing tommy. he is not fiscally responsible. and i
dollar deficits for the last four years, the largest debt increase in american history and say that we have to control spending. you have done nothing to control spending over the last four years and with respect to cut gap and balance it's amazing to me also this idea of cutting wasteful spending, capping the ability of congress to spend money we don't have and balancing the budget is extreme. i think it would force congress to set priorities and stop funding things like solyndra and prioritize things like social security, medicare and education and that is why i support a balanced budget amendment to the constitution. e. republican congressman robert dold and democratic challenger brad schneider are in a tight race for the tenth congressional district. it covers an area along part of michigan in the northern chicago severs. representative dold is running for a second term and brad schneider is the founder of the management controlling firm. the two candidates recently sat down for a debate, courtesy of chicago's wttw tv.
dollar deficit? do you think that we should have four more years with obamacare? how about more years in gridlock in washington dc? martha: you are not going to hear a lot of that from either side today. there is so much focus on this hurricane. i am joined by brit hume, fox news political analyst. you know, you think about this. each team, hunkering down, deciding what their best posture is and what they can do to be in the best position to help. also, not to hinder any of what is going on with this hurricane. what is the impact here?>> thert the impact will be until we see where the storm goes. and what it takes down with it in its path. i do not think that the way that the two men -- the two candidates, the way they conduct selves and the candidate -- everyone will cancel events. i can't help but laugh at the president who says that he's going to cut the red tape and get everything everybody needs. nonetheless, there it is. cutting through the red tape, not worrying about the rules. trying to get, you know, out there. whatever is needed. i think the political effect of the storm is
budget deficit, the uncertainty that exists in america over the fiscal cliff and the tax regime and perhaps anti-business policies being practiced by some -- we're not going to go there too aggressively. and so, um, you know, whatever the case may be, the economy's growing, but it's not a feel-good economy because the growth is not rapid enough to reduce i the level of unemployment in the -- reduce the level of unemployment in the economy. giving you some support, very important area of the economy to both the consumer and consumer psychology is housing. and you see really the ingredients for a decent size recovery in housing activity. affordability is near record high, that's the top left-hand slide. home prices to disposable income is running near record low levels, so houses are cheap. in fact, the value of a home is a function of the capitalized cost of renting. rents have gone up much more relative to house price, and so now it's actually with cheaper to buy a home than to rent. but people have not been doing it aggressively yet because one of the most important expenditure
not want an administration with trillion dollar deficits every year. they are not happy with the prospect of half of our kids not being able to get jobs and they come out of college, and they don't like the gridlock in washington. our campaign is about real change from day one. over the coming days, i will be talking to people across the country about what those changes will look like. let me mention once you today. it relates to taxes. this is kind of a detailedc. let me just put this into perspective. jenna: governor romney and his speech in ohio today, we just learned from his campaign that he will move on to iowa, but that he is canceling his events tonight and tomorrow -- wisconsin tonight and a kantian thought tomorrow. due to sensitivity of the hurricane, hurricane sandy, that we are watching closely. if you would like to keep an eye on the governor, he says anything about the storm, we will bring that to you. in the meantime, we will get back to some of our hurricane coverage. jon scott is in lower manhattan. jon: you can still see the statue of liberty at the new york harbor here
